About The Marriage Game

Sara Desai’s The Marriage Game is a fabulous diverse, sexy romcom full of sweet and sexy banter, drool-worthy food descriptions, quirky family members, and fun Bollywood references.

Layla is moving home after a disastrous breakup and subsequent firing. Her dad has said she can use the office above the family’s Indian restaurant for her new recruitment business. Unfortunately for her, her father has already rented the office.

Falling ill, her father hasn’t had the chance to talk to Sam, the serious, corporate hatchet man who’s already signed the lease. The two can’t agree who gets the office space so they engage in a wager.

Layla will go on ten dates with men her father chose as potential husbands for her. If she accepts one of the proposed arranged marriages, Sam gets the office. If she doesn’t agree to a marriage, she keeps the office.

What happens when Sam is the one Layla wants to date?

My thoughts about The Marriage Game

I thoroughly enjoyed this steamy enemies to lovers romance. Fun banter between the leads, quirky supporting characters. Perfect book to relax with.

Do you enjoy when a character enjoys foods or family traditions different than yours? I always love the peeks into a different culture. Especially when it’s food descriptions.Tell me what you think in the comments below.
